NO DECIDED CHANGE
IN “FLO” SITUATION
There was no decided change today
in the “flu” and pneumonia situation
in and about Annapolis. Phy.-irian

Ute home of her daughter near West

“Flu" Mortality In Nation
The mortality rate due to the in
Huenza epidemic this year was abou
1 half of that in 1 !*1 S. says a statement
issued by the Public Health Service
1 announcing that the present epidemic
apparently has reached its peak.
“A comparison,” the statement said
“of the excess mortality rate per 100.
000 of population for the respective
peak weeks of PJIB and P'2o shows:
* Chicago, 1,886, compared with 4,620 it:
1020; Milwaukee, 1.484, as compared
1 with 1,015; Washington, 2072, as com
pared with 0.780.
’ “These rates may be taken as a
fair indication of conditions through
’ out the country. With the exception
of some cities in Massachusetts am’
* New York State, exclusive of New
> York City, practically all of the re
ports indicate a decline.”

' AT THE REPUBLIC TODAY AND
TOMORROW
Miriam Cooper, the well-known
■ leading woman of the screen, who
■ will be seen at the Republic Theatre
■ today and tomorrow in the title role
1 of the William Fox super-production
f of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's im
mortal poem, "Evangeline.” is well fit
ted by ability and by training to give
■ a beautifully sensitive interpretation
' of the role of the unhappy heroine of
1 ;he great love epic.
1 Miss Cooper is a Baltimore girl
Site was educated at the New York
Art School, but her career as an ar
' tist was interrupted by the call of
* the screen.
Miss Cooper's ability soon brought
her to the front rank of screen ac
cesses. She was firmly established as
a leading woman by her prominent
part in “The Birth of a Nation.”
Miss Cooper followed this part with
:t long line of important roles in Fox
successes, including “The Honor Sys
e:n." “The Silent Lie.” "The Innocent
Sinner " and ‘ Betrayed."
Though Miss Cooper's art covers a
wide range of characters, she is at
her best in a Madonna-like role in
which her lustrous eyes and appeal
ing beauty are seen to exceptional ad
vantage The part of Evangeline if
hist as the heroine is rated among
be best acting ever preserved to pos
terity by motion picture photogqpphy
-THE SHEPHERD OF THE HILLS”
The widely read story of the Ozarks
has been tilmatized under the direc
;ion of Harold Bell Wright its author.
\s a novel this story has attained a
popularity which has not been equall
ed by any other book in As
a play the success of this work was
phenomenal and as a pietttrization
under the direction of Mr. Wright the
story bids fair to mark an epoch ii:
he art of the silent drama.
The pictures have been taken in the
heart of the Ozark Mountains and ir.
'alifornia. Mr. Wright and his asso
ciates have been engaged for months
in this great work. No expense has
been spared. No detail overlooked.
The countless millions who are fa
miliar with Mr. Wright's style and
iescriptive ability; those who under
stand in even a limited way the soope
iess possibilities of the moton-picture
camera can readily realize that the
great word-pictures of this author
should in the world of reel pictures J
indeed be works of art.
“SLEEPING SICKNESS”
PUZZLING LONDON
fCorresjwmlence l*n*ss. 1
London, Jan. 2*.- Eight or nine
cases of what appears to be a new
phase of the deadly “sleeping sick
ness" are puzzling the Londan Hos
pital doctors.
The disease to which the name en
cephalitis lethargia has been given
presents many id the symptons of tin-
African sleeping sickness, but so lar
tire tryanasoma hitherto thought to bej
responsible for the sleeping sickness,
common to the Congo natives, ha- n<\ |
been found in the blood of patients at '
the hospital.
A representative medical committee
is nvestleating the new disease.
The house surgeon states it is toe,
■arly to make > definite s'atennr.’. So.
far no common factor, save the over-;
powering dts.re to sleep, has bet .
found in cases under notice, nor has ,•
been possible yet to trace the origin o.
each There is >aid to be no cause i r
alarm as to the possible spread of the ;
disease.
Wonder how those folks who have'
been seeing red whenever England ;
was mentioned are now praising Lord
Grey! —Milwaukee Journal.

BUDGET PROVIDES FOR /
TWO FERRY LINES II
Governor Ritchie, in his budget, fol-j|l
lowed the lead of former Governor |
- Harrington in supporting the ferry -H
proposition. He not only marie a*luv\- j|
anee for the Annapolis - Claiborne ' 1
ferry, but put in 828.000 for the Benin- ■
sula fi rry, whit h plans to operate be j
tween Baltimore and Love Point.
The allowance is based upon the I
‘average cost of maintaining a mile of j
jtt.ite road, as the State treats the;
ferries as connecting links between;
| the roads on the Eastern and Western!
Shores.
The Governor said that he had been
advised that the Peninsula ferry/
while not yet in operation, had ae-j
quired its terminals, and gone ahead j
with it - plans to the extent that it had!
; determined upon its boat All that is
needed, it seems, is to complete the j
sale of stock, and to have assurance of j
mmiev from the Stic. By getting the,
| latter it probably will be able to more!
(quickly complete the former.
The Lusitania, so the experts report, j
must he left where she lies. But his-1
tory lias marked her place. Boston!
